    Maybe the election needs a half-time show.

    With, umm… cheerleader babes!

    Donna, you are too smart for your own good. And Mona has her nugget of truth, too. Where are the kitties?!

    They have a point. Unfortunately, I don’t know of any election save that of 1860 that was so polarized between good and evil.

    Mona is correct about how elections have come to be treated more like reality TV or sporting events. Important issues seem to never get mentioned in favor of trivia and fluff.

    Are spelling errors and sketchy grammar par for the course with this strip? If this strip has any lead time, where’s the proofreading?

    “Evil”, of course, defined as anything that makes you uncomfortable.

    Did you think she meant “country matters”? (You like the Shakespeare reference?)

    “This is my counry, land of my birth!
    This is my counry, greatest on earth!
    I pledge thee my allegance,
    America the bold,
    For this is my counry, to have and to hold!”

    (They made us learn that insipid song in 7th grade. I think it was once popular in the ’30s or ’40s.)

    re: randyb

    as defined by Jesus Christ. Don’t mistake mere opinion for that which is taught in the Scriptures. Until 30 years ago, most Americans knew them and they affected every part of their behavior.

    For example, Christ spoke in no uncertain terms about lying and murder in John 8:44 in speaking to a group of religious zealots whose god was money “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

    That’s pretty hard to mistake for the modern idea of Christ being passive and neutral.

    “Comfort” or “discomfort” is hardly a basis for anything, be it right and wrong, or under the law. Even the supreme court made that point.

    A person may be perfectly “comfortable” with lying, stealing, etc., but that does not make them moral.

    One of today’s trends that is annoying is so many things being taught and pushed as “science” that are by definition untrue because they run afoul of other established scientific laws or they are the mere product of insistence. Religion should be religion, not passed as science. Religion is debatable on its merits and what it produces. Science is supposed to be objective fact and the accumulation of laws and principles that describe what is observed in the field and in the lab. Today, it’s slop like orcas being three “species” on the basis of what they eat, despite knowing such things that the orcas in Alaska went from a diet of fish to a diet of mammals in the mid 2000s. Or claiming that soil is formed an inch every few hundred years, which would not begin to keep up with normal erosion.

    Or runs contrary to your own personal belief system.

    I see that your ideas about religion and science are peculiar to a particular religious tradition, and that you pass judgement on groups of people and whole fields of study with little humility and no regard for the complex nature of actual physical reality.
